Always keep trying, and don't let anything discourage you.

You will meet a hundred people that do things better than you, but that doesn't give you any reason not to try.

Keep trying when you feel like giving up.


Ten applications a week. Use a spreadsheet to keep track of those applications. Write company-specific cover letters.

Commit to submitting five cover letters and résumés per week, minimum. Send them then forget them, at least until you get a reply. Dragging your feet while you wait to hear from your dream job and then being sad that you didn't get a response is a waste of time. Crank out those applications and don't look back.

Do not assume you can't get a job just because you're insecure. Apply for everything that interests you.
